EA offering free gas in L.A. to celebrate ‘Mercenaries 2′

On Friday, Aug. 29, game publisher Electronic Arts is going to take control of a Los Angeles gas station and offer free gas to people. The event is trumpeting the release of Mercenaries 2: World in Flames, which is being developed by Pandemic Studios. The game takes place in Venezuela, and as you can guess, fire plays a big part in the experience.

The event is officially called “Petrol to the People,” and will even feature actors dressed as mercs pumping your gas. The event starts at 6 a.m.
